Healthcare technology company ZocDoc has raised $130 million in funding at a valuation of $1.8 billion. Baillie Gifford and Atomico led the round with participation from existing backer Founders Fund. The new funding will be sued by the company to develop new products. “Since our inception, we’ve been working to lead the healthcare experience into the digital age, and this funding will help us continue to deliver on our mission to give power to the patient,” said ZocDoc founder and CEO Cyrus Massoumi. “The fragmented healthcare space has produced too many broken systems that get in the way of good care. We aim to be the digital center of care that delivers the simple, seamless healthcare experience patients expect and deserve.”
GuiaBolso, a Brazilian personal finance startup, has raised a round of funding worth $7 million. Ribbit Capital led the round, with participation from Omidyar Network, QED Investors, Mark Goines and Peter Kellner. “Better financial management can literally change lives, so users make a point of recommending the app to their friends. We recently measured that after a month of using our app, people improve their financial health by 15%, on average,” said Thiago Alvarez, co-founder of GuiaBolso.
AppInside, a security technology company focused on mobile apps, has closed a $2.3 million seed funding round from Accomplice and angel investors. “Mobile applications are at the highest risk of exploitation, leaving both mobile app developers and their users vulnerable to data breaches and other malicious activity. For the most part, the app owners are unaware of their exposure to these threats,” said Elon Ohevya, co-founder and CEO of AppInside. “The funding is a validation of our approach and the immense problem we are trying to solve. We are pleased that our investors support our mission to fix mobile app security vulnerabilities before they are exploited.”
